Abstract:

The report describes an electronic switch that uses the parallel connection of a transistor switching circuit with an inverted-transistor switching circuit for discharging integrating capacitors regardless of the charge polarity on the capacitors. Diodes connected to the base of each transistor prevent reverse voltage breakdown of the base-collector and base-emitter junctions. The switch offers a low saturation voltage for both positive and negative load voltages, good control of switching variables and transients, and has a fast response time. Modified author abstract
